9/19/2011 - Fishing Chart
  • In the Keys, fishing is fantastic year round!  With the changing of Summer to Fall though, WHAT you catch may differ.  Below is a handy Fishing Chart courtesy of Captain Chris Johnson's site, that showcases which species are best to target when.  Some species such as Yellowtail and mangrove Snapper are excellent throughout the year.  Reel 'em in!!!

3/28/2011 - A few Examples of what to be aware of when purchasing a home here in the Florida Keys:
  •  Because of environmental concerns, there are Insurance issues to consider and how they can affect getting future building permits (FEMA List).
  • If you are buying Waterfront property, depending on how large your boat is or will be, then the boating draft (How deep the water needs to be for your boat to get through) is a main issue, as well as access to open water—bridges etc.
  • If you’re buying a Condo, then you’ll need to know which ones have done upgrades to maintain their value, and which will qualify for financing.
  • If you’re buying a waterfront home there are some VERY important things you'll have to know.
  • If your property has a downstairs enclosure...was it/is it legal and in compliance??
  • If you’re considering using your home as a rental—You’ll want to know the requirements-laws-rental periods and more
 These and many other issues are concerns that you should be aware of when considering a property here in the Keys.  Lucky for you The Conchquistador has faced  and aced them all!  Put the experience and expertise of The Conchquistador to work for you!!
